Blood drawing gets big turnout

Under the guidance of Carolyn Knee, the Girl Scouts of America #391 did an excellent job of chairing a successful Red Cross blood drawing earlier this month at the Sunnyside United Methodist Church.

Our goal was 70 units. We had 77 presenters and one first-time donor. Six were unable to give, leaving 71 units collected. Many thanks to allthe donors, who are the lifeline for the flow of blood in the Valley. Because of their efforts, 213 people will have another chance at life.

A special thanks to the sponsors for the food (juice and homemade soups), and the wonderful cookies made by the Girl Scouts.

A big thanks also to volunteers Ramona Meek, Alice Benedetti, Myrtis Lang, Ella Mae Lochner, Phyllis Morris, Crystal Moore, Katie Knee, Megan Razey and Julie Wedam.

Appreciation also goes to the United Methodist Church for the use of its hall, Bob Story for the publicity and Max of Washington Corrugators for displaying the banner at Centennial Square.

We hope to see everyone at the next blood drawing on Tuesday, May 2, at the United Methodist Church from 1 to 6 p.m.
